that? >> without objection, that motion carries supervisor mar is excused. mr. clerk if you could please call item number one. >> a hearing to consider issuance of a type 42 on sale beer and witness license to ferris ferdon for ferdon... >> and to just to note that this item is agendaized as a committee report because of the timing of the committee prior meetings and how long this process has taken for this application, that was important for us to have the opportunity to forward it to the board on a more expedited basis, so with that, i will turn it over to the applicant, ferris ferdon. >> good morning. >> i have never done this before. >> you could just tell us a little bit about what you are trying to do, and the reason
for the request and if you could talk a little bit about the out reach that you have done that would be helpful. >> thank you. >> i own the store on chest nut and marina, we have 12 stores in california and have been doing this for 12 years, and we specialize in only california olive oil and it is tested to higher standards than the european market and that got them upset years ago. and so if you have been to napa you have probably seen that the gourmet food business is really become the pairing building and so the olive oil and the wines are kind of the hip now. our store in lahoya which opened two years ago has a wine license and they do wine parings and olive oil testings, and so our goal was really just
to enhance the store and enhance the experience, our wine bar is going to be very small, it will be totally inside, and it won't be outside, there is a patio but we are not going to use it. we are going to keep the minimal hours and probably no later than 9:00 p.m. so it is not going to be a big, loud, rucus venue. i think that i passed out some of the information we started a petition a few months ago and we had tremendous support from the neighborhood people were kind of at the snotty end, a16 and two doors down and the meat market and the coffee roasty. and it is going to be a nice neighborhood event basically, we... i have a letter that broadly explains our goal and
intent and then the petition, and the diagram of the floor plan, that is what we are hoping to do. >> for those of you in the audience, there are a lot of things that effect, and why don't we hear from the policement, i understand that expecter fong and darcey keller are here. >> okay. >> thank you very much, sir. >> good morning, inspector, (inaudible) with the san francisco police department, avc, the liaison unit. >> on behalf of ferdon olive oil has filed an application with the department of beverage control speaking a type 42 on

ferdon for being here and i do appreciate wanting... and i also am very happy that you reached out to the community and have reached the neighborhood support for this investment for this committee to know that, and i understand that the supervisor in your district has already met with you. yeah. so that is a good thing, i would like to see this move forward. >> thank you, supervisor yee and i do want to echo those comments, and one of the things that we make it clear any time that someone wants to apply for a liquor license is to make sure that when they come to this committee that they have done the out reach to the community, that there is community support and that they have met with the district
supervisor. and you have done that and that is a good sign in terms of how you are going to run this business. and we understand also that the district supervisor is supportive of this. so, without any other comments, why don't we open it up to public comment, if there is any member of the public who would like to speak on this item? please come forward. >> seeing none, public comment is closed. so if we could have a motion to send this item forward with a recommendation as a committee report to the board of supervisor? s >> moved. >> so we have a motion by supervisor yee and if we could take that without objection. >> thank you to the police department for the work on this. congratulations. >> mr. clerk, if you could please call item two? >> item number two is an ordinance amending the police codes replace the existing 8 foot bubble zone for

hillary who started working on this for more than a year ago before they went on maternity leave and stephanie ashley who has picked up the work and i can tell you that many, many hours have gone into this. i especially want to thank the staff and the women, and the men who go to planned parenthood who have been so patient and dealing with this situation. and have actually been more patient than i think is probably expected or should be expected of anyone. and i want to thank them for the very responsible measured, way in which they have approached this issue. i also want to thank the city attorney office who has given a lot of advice on this matter as well as the police department including not only the chief of police but also the district captain and we have
